Mandela's condition "serious this time" -S.Africa government spokesman

JOHANNESBURG, June 8 (Reuters) - Former South African President Nelson Mandela’s medical condition was “serious this time”, a government spokesman told local television on Saturday.

The 94-year-old anti-apartheid hero and the country’s first black president was taken to hospital early on Saturday for a recurring lung infection.

“The situation is serious this time but doctors have assured us he is comfortable,” presidential spokesman Mac Maharaj told television station eNCA.
